Nas and Nicki Minaj kicked off a flurry of rumors earlier this year after the pair were seen on social media looking cozy with each other. The Queens natives landed back in the rumor mill mix after images of the pair surfaced online during the 44th birthday celebration of the Illmatic artist on Wednesday.
As captured and posted by The Shade Room, Nas and Nicki were seen in a snuggly, hugged-up pose as a server brought over a birthday cake while gatherers sang “Happy Birthday” in unison. The rapper born Nasir Jones was all smiles and clean in a silk blue suit, while Nicki’s blond tresses and fitted Black dress was a complimentary look.
This doesn’t confirm that there’s a relationship, but back in May and June of this year, Minaj did say she admires the birthday boy, who actually turns 44 today.
